    There is space available for National Leadership Challenge Weekend next weekend, Nov. 15-17, 2013.

    Last year at this time was my son's first weekend experience at the University of North Georgia. It was NLC weekend that clinched it and he knew UNG was the right school and the right ROTC program for him. He says North Georgia's NLC weekend was an accurate portrayal of the rigor of the college program and training. I highly recommend going to this event if you're considering attending a Senior Military College.

    If next weekend is too soon for your schedule, there's another NLC happening April 4-6, 2014.

    Here's a link to the program information

    My DS went to the one in the spring earlier this year. He had already been accepted to UNG (along with The Citadel, VMI, and elsewhere), but this helped confirm for him that North Georgia was where his wanted to be.

    Having been through Frog Week now, he describes NLC as "Frog Week Lite" - gives you real taste of the program but not as intense / stressful as the real thing of course. Since it's run by current cadets, you do get a chance to meet and interact with people who'll be part of the cadre if do make it in.

    Highly recommend it for anyone with an interest in an SMC or AROTC. My DS is looking forward to being on the other side of this for the upcoming weekend!

    I went to NLC last year, and it was an amazing experience (you get to rappel down a 60' rock face at Camp Frank D. Merril - that was imo the best), but literally everything is fun and whether you are considering UNG or not it will be a great time.
